Miss Elam, Miss Llumar, Miss Bud tip

I found that after I got a little bot of water in my engine bay of my Miss Elam Plus my engine liked to take a gulp of water, thus dieing in the middle of a lake and getting hydrolocked. I also found this to be the one thing that made what whould have been a fun day running my hydro into a headache. Anyone else out there have this same problem? Well here is a simple fix for it and ProBoat even gived you the part you need to make it happen.

Take the extra silicone tubing for the exhaust and put it over the carb intake. That simple and after 2 tanks of gas run out of the boat I did not have any problems. I did have water in my engine bay but none in my engine. look at the pics for what I did

If anyone else has any tips on this series of boat or any other hydroplane out there please post them here.

You can put radio box tape around the cowling then once the boat is started, put the cowl on and quickly finish taping it to the deck. It ain't pretty but will keep a lot of water out of the boat. The flywheel will throw water up into the carb.

I just picked up the latest RCBM and it does have a nice article on the Proboat hydros but it is for the 1/8 scale. Mine is a 1/12 scale. Good stuff al the same tho thanks
